An exclusive $500-a-head fundraiser for failed Victorian Labor MP Nathan Murphy could end up in the courts after a borrowed apartment used for the shindig was trashed, male and female underwear was dumped on the floor and a $700 coat went missing from the premises. The apartment's distraught owner, Michelle Matthews -- who is not associated with the ALP and rented out her home and business headquarters as a favour to Murphy's 26-year-old girlfriend -- was shocked to return home two days after the booze-up to find her $1 million dollar pad turned upside down with detritus littered everywhere. The bed was left unmade, the kitchen filthy, and a $700 Karen Millen trench coat and Black Body brand dress were nowhere to be seen. Disposable male razor blades, Brut deodorant and a his and hers undies set were also found festering. "I was disgusted, the place was left in absolute pigsty, it was filthy and the underwear was very clearly soiled," she told Crikey yesterday.

The event, "Nathan Murphy MP cooks for you!", was held on Friday November 5 as the member was in the midst of a tussle to beat off the Liberal Party for the final upper house position in Northern Metropolitan. An invitation, found scrunched up under a couch, shows Murphy holding a well-basted turkey with the phrase "Earl. Nathan asked to pass on to you." scrawled at the top.
